I'm in Mexico City waiting on some repairs to my moto before I can make my way over to Oaxaca and see some of the sights you recommended tricepilot! Can't wait to see and read your stories.

One of the best mountain runs in the Sierra Madre is 175, that really starts to gain its reputation near Tuxtapec. We left Veracruz on Mx 150, joined up to Mx 145, and then onto Mx 175 for the jump to Oaxaca.

However, as with every single day when in Mexico, no day begins without as many potent cups of coffee as can be drunk between the time of getting up and the time of clutching out from the overnight stay. I'm not sure what it is, but I can take all sorts of variety for breakfast food, and I'm not upset if circumstances equate to finding breakfast later, but a Standard Operating Procedure is to find JAVA in the AM and get the caffeine buzz on. I think its because that feeling paired with getting a move on in Mexico is a high. I love the country coming to life in the cities and towns, the smell of the bakeries, the shops opening up, the kids going to school. Sunrise and morning in Mexico is special. I also think I'll never get tired of waking up and saying to myself, again, "hey!, I'm here!". Hotel coffee, restaurant coffee, or even Jet Boil coffee, it doesn't matter to me. Show me the Java. ¿cómo amaneciste?

Oaxaca and the Central Valleys



This map, from Oaxaca Mio, is invaluable for picturing the approaches to Oaxaca as well as the equally impressive number of places to visit in the valleys and towns that surround the main city.

North and South



This map, also from Oaxaca Mío, depicts some of the major trunk routes north and the two major connecting routes to the beaches.

Colorful Oaxaca

Without a doubt, one of the most enjoyable things for me is to just appreciate the look and feel of Mexico's cities in the many earth tones and bright colors. The first thing I do when I arrive in any Mexican town, is ditch the bike and start the hike, to absorb the patinas and tones of this wonderful land. Let's take a look at Oaxaxa...
